Logitech says the headset is lightweight, strong and comfortable for extended gameplay. It’s powered by Logitech G Pro-G drivers for crisp audio, leatherette ear pads for noise isolation and a pro-grade condenser microphone.

"The sound quality of the new Logitech G PRO Gaming Headset is unmatched,” says Ji-Hyeok “Birdring” Kim, London Spitfire (Overwatch).

“The headset raises our team’s level of play by allowing us to hear key in-game audio that helps us stay a step ahead of our opponents.”

The Logitech G PRO Gaming Headset has also been named the official headset of the Electronic Sports League (ESL) CS:GO Pro League, ESL One and ESL Premiership, and will be the headset of choice for several top teams and players.

After more than two years in development and input from more than 50 professional eSports players, the Logitech G PRO Wireless Gaming Mouse weighs in at 80 grams for a light but strong design. It has a HERO (High Efficiency Rated Optical) 16K sensor to boost sensor speed, accuracy, and responsiveness.

"Having such a lightweight wireless mouse that I knew I could depend on made a huge difference for me at the championship," said Profit, London Spitfire. "It helped me win the MVP - it's a god mouse."
